In this video by Howcast, Dr. Asma Sadiq discusses whether there are diets which can help address certain symptoms of autism, including the popular gluten-free, casein-free diet among people with autism. Many individuals on the spectrum also have co-occurring food sensitivities, which a diet such as the gluten-free, casein-free diet can help to address, and the diet has also been shown to improve social and communication skills in children who begin the diet.
Research into nutrition and its effects is still in its infancy, but the results that exist so far suggest it might be an idea worth trying, especially for an autistic individual who also has gastrointestinal issues.
